46th Annual AKA Grand Nationals will be January 28-29, 2011 in Chicago, IL. This year's venue will be the Hyatt Regency Chicago on 151 E. Wacker Drive. January 28th will host the all ranks in extreme divisions, musical divisions, team divisions of team sparring, Team synch and team demo as well as the adult black belt creative weapons division. January 29th will host all ranks in traditional weapons, traditional forms, individual sparring, under belt creative weapons and night time finals featuring the best of the in the black belt divisions competing for the AKA Warrior Cup one of the biggest sport martial art trophies awarded.

This year the AKA has started working with the USTC to help promote unity within the organizations. While on the surface we may be serving different communities, our core goals of keeping traditional martial arts alive and well are very much the same. Through this we are doing cross promotion of events. We invite people of the TKD community to come out and participate or watch the Grand Nationals, which was started by the late GM Ernest Lieb who was a Jidokwan, Takwondoin. For USTC members we are offering a special discount on registration as well as we would like to work with the TKD community in general.

We are also working to promote the Hanmadang within the AKA organization to bring sport martial art competitors out and experience an excellent TKD event as well. We hope to see some of you at the event. Please feel free to contact me offline at korean-tkd@sbcglobal.net

Thank you. I really hope this will be successful for both organizations. Eventually we would like to add on specific Korean divisions for both sparring and forms at the AKA Grands. We have a "Korean" division for the black belt 18-29 but those forms are usually done in a more open circuit method than traditional method.
